A Journey from Long Ago……

Hello Ringtonians!

While delving through our archives the other day we came across a fascinating booklet from 1935 / 36. The book was a  very special edition of “The Ringtonian” and came about after our founding father, Mr Samuel Smith took a journey to India and Ceylon. He was asked to give public talks and appearances afterwards to talk about his experiences and impressions during the visit.

Not being a public speaker, he instead gave extracts of his own personal diary which he diligently kept throughout the trip.

Over the next few months we will be posting all of these excerpts in real time starting with his first entry on October 25th (yes that’s tomorrow!) and we hope you enjoy reading them. They really do take you back in time.

As always, we’d love to hear your comments.
